Abstract From the edgy architecture of the Grande Arche de la Défense to the priceless paintings that line the walls of the Musée d'Orsay, France spends a significant part of its national budget on culture. This program shows viewers how to voice an opinion - positive or negative - on French architecture, ask for information at a museum, and speak analytically about works by the great masters. Also, a performance of Molière's Le Malade Imaginaire at a comedy festival is spotlighted, while an apprentice stonemason assisting with the restoration of a 15th-century building is profiled.
